Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache + DSL + Router + Beginner = partial web- presence outside router!HELP!
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2002 15:18:46 GMT

What propably is happening is that your server is giving a redirect using
a servername or IP address which is non routable/inside your network.

Try (from the outside) to telnet to port 80 and see what exactly it shows
in the location. Or try chaning the ServerName etc to your outside IP
address.
